Scallop Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mersaydees

This is based on a recipe from Bon Appetit’s May 1984 issue, from a menu titled: Hearty Dinner from Portugal” in the Cooking for Two Elegant and Easy section. Be sure to get that broth boiling before you ladle it over those thinly sliced raw scallops! :) I haven’t yet tried this.

This is a very easy and light gourmet soup that my DS and I really liked! I could not find white port but used dry white wine. I also used baby scallops (unsliced) and they were great in this. Made for my ZWT5 teammate. Thanks mersaydees!
